Brand Licensing Europe has been shortlisted for an Association of Event Organisers Excellence Award.
The show, which celebrates its 21st anniversary in 2019, takes place October 1st to 3rd 2019 at ExCeL London. The BLE team is a finalist in the Best Trade Show (over 8,000 sq. m) category.
The AEO Excellence Awards ‘represent the best of the events industry and recognise and celebrate organisers’ achievements’, and the winners will be announced at the AEO Awards on June 14th at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane.
BLE event director, Anna Knight, said: “This is a huge accolade for BLE and a total honour to be recognised for everything we achieved last year: visitor and retailer numbers were both up – by four and 10 per cent respectively – and the number of European exhibitors at BLE in 2018 also rose significantly.
“With the move to ExCeL this year and a whole host of new visitor features in the pipeline, we’re really excited to take things up one more notch and deliver the best ever BLE in 2019.”
